Are we ever going to get to see a book from yourself Larry about Objects and Design Patterns? I know your PHP5 Advanced book covers OOP in 3 chapters but the QuickPro format has it's restrictions. I've read some good books on the subject and over the years the theory has become easier to grasp but I'm no expert! I've also read on your blog you're not overly into design patterns but things change... especially since I read your MVC blog posts. Probably not the best time to ask while you're writing a Flex book ;) (and have a PHP e-commerce book on the horizon for later in the year). Just wondering if it's something you may have thought about or want to cover? Maybe MVC could be a good topic to covered in Effortless Flex 4 Development?

Hey Jason,

Thanks for the interest. Right now, working on one book, the e-commerce book slated for later this year, and hopefully my self-published JavaScript book in there somewhere, the idea of ever doing another book is daunting! Plus I often feel like I've run out of things to say. But then time passes, I learn new things, think of new things to discuss, and all of a sudden there's another book being written.

I haven't thought about OOP and Design Patterns, although I have a couple of OOP/Design books on my shelf (not that I've them but...). Maybe some day I could start some blog posts about this and see how I feel about the subject (from a writing perspective). My main concern is that both are largely theory books and I generally prefer to write books that are mostly actionable. Anyway, thanks for the interest and for the suggestion!

Best Wishes,
